Exclamation Moto-Mower Shark II

the kill switch on the blower broke when i went to fuel it, my father recently bought it and it has a briggs motor on it, i don't think that's the original, the kill switch has one wire into it which i believe it's the ground wire, i was wondering if i could still start it and then shut it off by removing the spark plug cap, it's also very cold which might be another reason it's not starting help if you could, thanks

The wire should be what grounds the ignition to kill the spark.

You can pull the wire to the plug but it's a lot of wear and tear on the ignition wire. It's also a good chance to get a shock.

With the broken wire you can just touch it to metal and that should kill the engine or you can hook up a switch and use that.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I know that feeling, woke up to -13. Burrrrrrrrrrr

Let us know if it's working, or not when you get a chance to mess with it.

Touch the wire coming from the engine to the engine or the handlebars and it should kill it

Had a 1967 Motor Mower Snow Shark and mine had a 6 1/4 HP Kohler engine. It was a great machine.
